For proper nourishment, your body needs a healthy and balanced diet. You need a good mix of foods from the four basic food groups of Canada’s Food Guide – and you also need water.
Whether you follow the 8 to 10 glasses a day rule or follow different guidelines, you need to ensure you and your family are drinking enough water to keep all your body systems functioning at their best.
Your body is constantly using water to:
• build cells
• soften skin
• digest food
• keep body temperature low
• remove waste
• keep joints lubricated
and a host of other things.

Experts will tell you that drinking plenty of water helps keep you energized as well as giving your skin and eyes a healthier glow.
Doesn't it make sense to keep your body well-supplied? A Discovery Springs water cooler in your home will encourage you and your family to drink more pure water. (A side benefit is that with pure spring water on tap, everyone will probably drink fewer caffeinated and sugary beverages as well!)
The only additives in Discover Springs water are those that Mother Nature herself put in. And people the world over swear by the healing and nourishing effects of spring water – can they all be wrong?

Did you know that..
Your entire body needs water to work well?
Water helps you digest food and then turn that food into energy. Water regulates your body temperature, keeps your mouth moistened, and maintains muscle tone. Water also carries nutrients and oxygen to every cell in the body, and protects and cushions vital organs and joints.
Water plays a significant part in weight loss and helps the body metabolize stored fat.
Water is a great aid for dieters because it has no calories, acts as an appetite suppressant, and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Drinking enough water helps alleviate fluid retention, relieve constipation and flush impurities from the body.
Water is a natural detox agent?
Detoxing doesn't have to be all about cabbage soup. When you have overdone it, lived life to the excess and need to cleanse from within, a healthy detox regime begins with consumption of 1.5 litres of water a day.
During a 60 minute workout you can sweat out more than a quart of water?
Dehydration happens very fast. It’s a good idea to drink 750ml of water two hours prior to exercising, then sipping water every 20 minutes or so during your workout.
Drinking water is particularly important for pregnant and breast feeding women?
Water is crucial for the developing baby as well as for its mother. Drinking water after giving birth is equally important in helping a mother’s body begin producing milk.
Caffeinated and alcoholic beverages are dehydrating?
These drinks zap your body of water. Drinking more water is extra important to good health if you consume caffeinated or alcoholic beverages regularly.
